lewis carroll: artist and librarian

The Mock Turtle tells Alice how he went to school in the sea, taking courses like Reeling and Writhing and Fainting in Coils. He means these to relate to Alice’s own lessons of Reading and Writing and Painting in Oils. The Mock Turtle also studied Mystery (History), Drawling (Drawing), and Laughing and Grief (Latin and Greek). ~ from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland with illustrations by John Tenniel.
